Steps of Hope ~ An outreach program of Hope Beyond Today & One by One

You can CHOOSE to give some SHOES, so when these kids are walking miles they can smile! 

What: A practical ministry to distribute one pair of shoes and two pairs of socks each to 400 students in Northeast India.

When: Early April to “kick off” the new academic session

Why: Because children walk as long as two hours to reach school – and many don’t even own one pair of shoes!!

Updated to add: More than 300 students received a new pair of shoes and two pairs of socks through the Steps of Hope program this April!

Most of our students walk to school and it can take them as long as two hours to travel one way. Some children wear thin flip flops, but many have no shoes at all, so Steps of Hope will help keep children safe and healthy this school year.

For some of our students in the remote villages who attend the B school this was their very first pair of shoes.   Third, fourth and even some fifth graders received shoes and were SO excited at the thought of shoes of their very own.
